The iconic jamtronica pioneers, the Disco Biscuits, are taking over Port Chester for a three-night run, April 27-April 29, at the city’s longstanding concert venue, The Capitol Theatre. Kicking off on Thursday, April 27, the Biscuits will bring their unique trance-rock fusion to the stage, and with it their well-established fanbase, commonly referred to as Bisco Kids.
Since the late ’90s, guitarist Jon Gutwillig, bassist Marc Brownstein, and keyboardist Aron Magner have established a name for themselves as a leader in America’s jam band scene, distinguishing themselves from their “organic” counterparts by incorporating electronic dance elements into their sound. With the addition of their current drummer, Allen Aucoin, the Biscuits have repeatedly sold out many renowned venues nationwide, are a sought out attraction at music festivals, and have been running their own yearly festival, Camp Bisco, since 1999.
The Disco Biscuit experience is often described as being one of a kind; if you’re looking for a fun-loving community built around dance-inducing tunes, we recommend stopping by one of these shows. Tickets for Thursday and Friday are currently available; unfortunately the Saturday show is all sold out.

If you’re still unsure what the band is all about, let their guitarist, Jon Gutwillig, affectionately dubbed “Barber,” spell it out for you: “It’s almost like getting cars into a field with cameras and just shooting a high-speed chase right there on the spot. What we’re trying to do, for the observer, is to make the most awesome, exciting, high-speed chase that they could possibly watch. And we’re trying to do it in a way that makes everyone feel like they went there, they lived it, and they felt it deep inside. That’s our goal.”
